Viewing NBC.com’s Office videos on a Mac — updated

Did you know that you can find some hilarious deleted Office scenes at NBC.com? Unfortunately, you can’t view these videos on a Mac.

The discussion on how to get around this limitation started with Life in the Office (thanks, Brian!) and a savvy reader named Bert.

But now, thanks to Fiona and her excellent comment below, here is how to watch these clips on a Mac with pretty high quality, and completely free!

  1. Download and install Windows Media Components for QuickTime by Flip4Mac (free download).
  2. In Finder, double-click the WMV Player.
  3. Choose File > Open URL, and enter one of the links below.
  4. Wait until the video completely downloads before playing it.
